Monday Musings - Allegiant by Veronica Roth Review

Once upon a time, a man and a woman fell in love. However, they would fight every Tuesday night about what to watch on television. It was like clockwork; a fight every Tuesday evening at 8:00pm, and then happiness the rest of the week. But then the woman got a haircut, and the couple lived happily ever after.

So, does that story make sense? No, of course it does not. Why? Because the story that started is not the story that ended. At some point, the plot changed. One could make excuses for it. Maybe the woman’s hair was getting in her eyes and impairing her vision. But why can’t she just use a hairclip? It is a flimsy conclusion that doesn’t address the true problems.

This is the problem that dragged down Allegiant.

In Which I Feel Like A True Silicon Valley Nerd

This is hardly my first blog. But it is the first time I'm ever purchased a domain name for a blog, so that is pretty exciting. Look at it up there, just sitting all nice and pretty in the address line. Oooh. Personal.


Sorry, got distracted.

So why another blog? Well, to be candid, I want to get more serious about writing. Specifically the publication aspect of writing, because I'm already pretty serious about the writing process. So a blog seemed like a good way to chronicle my way through that process, and hopefully buying a pretty domain name will lead to lots of blog posts and seriousness. Hopefully, anyway. We shall see.

On to new things!
